He could not have 3 belts if he wasn't fighting the best guys in his division.
I can give him and Vitali a pass for not fighting each other.. Don't any of you guys have brothers?
I agree. Nobody is talking about his belts. I'm not saying they should fight. I clarified this. I am saying that the # of defenses Wlad have is not legit because if he had fought Vitali (the #2) during his defense reign he probably would have lost, hence snapping the streak. This is vital because many boxing writers when asked about their claim for Wlad in the top 10 ATG HW ranking almost always brings up his longevity and # of consecutive defenses.
